"Foxcatcher" star Steve Carell started this year's Oscars derby in first place for Best Actor but has now taken a back seat to Michael Keaton for his performance in "Birdman." According to the latest predictions by our experts, Keaton has leading odds of 14/5 with Carell sharing second place with Eddie Redmayne ("The Theory of Everything") at 4/1. (See who each of our Experts is backing here.) And while both Redmayne and fourth place contender Benedict Cumberbatch ("The Imitation Game") are on the rise, I am still predicting Carell to win. Let me share with you my five reasons why: -Break- 'The Imitation Game' puts pressure on Oscar rivals for Best Picture in latest predictions Reason One: He plays a real person. Carell plays John Eleuthère du Pont who murdered Dave Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo) in 1996 after training both Dave and his brother Mark (played by Channing Tatum)...' »

The 2014 Hamptons Intl. Film Festival has added two high profile festival-circuit titles to its 2014 slate, with Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher” set for the Saturday Centerpiece screening and Jean-Marc Valee’s “Wild” on tap to open the Southhampton leg of Hiff, which screens movies at venues throughout the Hamptons.
Buzzy awards-season contender “Foxcatcher,” which stars Steve Carrell and Channing Tatum in a story about a mulitmillionaire’s obsession with a wrestler and his brother, will play the Hamptons Oct. 11, the day after the pic plays the 2014 New York Film Festival and about a month ahead of Sony Pictures Classics’ Nov. 14 release.
Reese Witherspoon starrer “Wild,” meanwhile, will play Hiff’s Southampton cinema Oct. 10. The movie, about a woman who embarks on a 1,100-mile walk to help recover from a difficult time in her life, is lined up for a Dec. 5 release from Fox Searchlight.

One of the rare films to play at both Sundance and the Toronto International Film Festival was writer-director Maya Forbes’ Infinitely Polar Bear. Based on her own childhood experiences, the film takes place in 1978 Boston and stars Mark Ruffalo as a manic-depressive father struggling to raise his young daughters while also trying to win back his wife (Zoe Saldana). Loaded with fantastic performances and a great script that’s able to keep Ruffalo sympathetic even when he’s causing serious problems, Forbes’ debut feature really impressed me, and you should look forward to seeing it for yourself next year in theaters. Shortly after the Tiff premiere I landed an exclusive interview with Maya Forbes. During the interview she talked about getting to be part of Sundance and Tiff, her first cut of the film and what she cut out, the subject matter and how there is an element of fortuitousness »

It’s September, so why wouldn’t we start predicting an Oscar race that won’t finish for another five months?
To be fair, Venice, Telluride, and the Toronto film festivals have all concluded. Many films have screened. Many films have connected with audiences, and a rough draft of the Oscar race is beginning to come into focus. Sure, no Academy member will even begin popping in those screener DVDs for another couple of months, but it’s still worth discussing what has buzz and what is likely to still be on voters’ minds once the weather finally begins to cool off. »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

According to our racetrack odds, the Best Supporting Actor Oscar is a close contest between J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash") and Mark Ruffalo ("Foxcatcher"). However, while "Foxcatcher" is a major contender for Best Picture, "Whiplash" isn't expected to reap bids in any other major category. Can Simmons prevail if he's the sole nominee for his film? Or can "Whiplash" gain traction in other categories as well? -Break- You Decide: Who will will Original Screenplay Oscar? 'Boyhood,' 'Foxcatcher' ...? These days, it's hard to win an acting Oscar without broad academy support. Best Picture has included nine or 10 nominees since the academy expanded the category in 2009. Of the 20 acting winners over these past five years, all but four have come from Best Picture nominees. The exceptions: Jeff Bridges (Best Actor, "Crazy Heart," 2009), Meryl Streep...' »

Directed by Bennett Miller
With Foxcatcher, Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball) directs a tragic tale of American ambition gone awry. It’s a grave and stately undertaking that’s based on the real story of John du Pont, heir to one of the richest families in America, who dreamed of building a wrestling team around the talents of two gold medal wrestlers that came from modest means. The inequality of power pushes the tension between the three over the edge. Although the film isn’t an awe-inspiring achievement as a whole, the performances and atmosphere stimulate the senses and hold a firm grip on the viewer’s attention.
In the aftermath of Olympic glory, brothers David and Mark Schlutz are assessing their options. That David (Mark Ruffalo) is the more coveted, recognizable and talented of the pair causes a rift between the siblings. »
